Bio-Imaging & Informatics Lab

Bio-imaging Informatics lab is focused on developing new types of imaging features that allow us to assess previously undetectable changes of healthy and diseased brain structure and function. We use a wide range of neuroimaging techniques including diffusion magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), functional MRI, Positron Emission Tomography, 3D near infrared optical tomographic imaging and Computerized tomographic imaging. Along with improvements in neuroimaging techniques, we study computational methods and infrastructure on effective uses of biomedical imaging data for scientific inquiry, problem solving and decision making, motivated by efforts to improve human health. We have particular interest in studying of brain-immune interactions in aging.
